I cant believe it's Thursday already! This week has kind of flown by. I am definitely feeling better than I was on Monday. Thanks to my Sparkfriends for making me feel a little better about not being on my game 100% of the time.
I haven't been eating the best this week- but I have eaten worse. Yesterday was a bad day for food. It was all sugary snacks too! I have this dilemma. I am signed up for treat day- which is every wednesday someone brings snacks for everyone. Then we go through the list until its my turn again. I spend about $25 for food on my days, and then everyone gets to eat the food brought in on Wed (everyone that's signed up that is) yesterday it was a Smore Cupcake, cookies and creme krispie treats, 2 smaller frosted cookies.
I also had 5 of my own oatmeal cookies at home. God that sounds like a binge. It was the first day of my Shark week so i wanted to eat everything in sight.
I'm not going to agonize over it because it's done, yesterday is gone and there's nothing that I can do about it. I can do good today! And I am so far!
This morning I had my yearly health screening where we get our levels tested for free at work here. All of my numbers were better last year except my blood pressure, that was just SLIGHTLY worse. And I gained 14lbs from last march. SO... could be worse. My mom has high blood pressure so I need to keep that on watch. It used to be very good- and usually is at the DR. lol maybe its just being at work that makes me get high bp.
I mentioned before that Ive been trying to run but my hip has been giving me BIG problems! Well I decided to really work it and warm it up before my interval running last night. And I'm okay today!! It hurts just a bit, but NOTHING like it was on Tuesday, I can actually walk.
That gives me so much hope because I started a training plan to kick some 5K butt for March 15th! Me and my sparkfriend Julie (JULS_MARIE) are going to meet up and run a Shamrock Shuffle 5k! Im so excited to meet her, she has done AMAZING on her own progress and looks so good. I dont think she's done much running before so i want to help her get into it! I don't have any race buddies around here so it would be awesome if she got crazy like me!
I am excited for this weekend- J and I are hosting a Superbowl Party on Sunday! His friends enjoy it and I like it because it's one of the few times that his friends and mine are in one place! So of course those 6 hours will not be healthy, but I do want to try limiting myself. If I drink I will probably just get a bottle of wine to sip. Something dryer so I savor it and just see to my hostess duties!
On Saturday I have a 5mi run to do according to my schedule. haha, I ALSO have a whole livingroom to clean and de-catify that day. Then a Pure Romance party with a couple girlfriends- LOVE IT! I might have to get something special for Valentines day *wink wink
Okay- back to work! Lots of stuff to do today! Have a great rest of the week everyone!!
